501s, part 2

Now they hang out here for 2-3 hours until they're damp, and then I wear them dry to set the size. The idea is that you buy them just a little big, then the hot water soak shrinks them 'til they're a little small on you, then as you wear them dry they stretch just enough to be a perfect fit. And this first cycle kind of sets a "memory" in the material- they'll stretch a little as you wear them but each hot wash will bring them back to your size 🙂 Now I've just got to go and scrub the blue stain off the sink before Jackie sees it 😉
